Our Core Values



The New Covenant is one of Grace, not condemnation. We believe that Jesus extends grace to everyone to respond to, and that we should follow in His steps. While we believe we each are called to lives of discipleship, we are accutely aware of our own shortcomings and that our need for grace is just as valid today as it was the day we were saved.  



We believe that prayer, praise and study are direct lines to God - that they are all forms of Worship. We should speak to God, sing to God and learn all about Him every chance we get. Worship is our chance to praise God and glorify Him in our lives and we take great joy in doing so.



It's important to Jesus - after all - His gauge of our salvation will be "did I know you?" As we are called to know Jesus intimately, so we are called to know those who make up the church as well. And so it's important to us to join in fellowship with our brothers and sisters in Christ. It's one main reason we have a full fellowship lunch every Sunday after service! Fellowship with our brothers and sisters in Christ strengthens our bond with each and our Lord. 



Jesus called us to go out and spread the word of God. We believe that this is not done enough. We make it a priority to go outside of the church walls to reach the lost and broken. We hope that you will join us in doing so.  To that effect, we have numerous ministries with that focus.  Your invited to learn about them and find one or more that interests you and get connected!  Not everyone is an evangelist - but we all can and should seek the Lord's will and when He calls us to share, obey!

Our History

The Church is a young, independent, growing church. We started with a small group of people in a home bible study who came together out of a shared desire to learn about God and grow closer to Him and one another. We desire to live out the truth of God’s Word by modeling grace, and by loving and serving others as we pursue holiness.  Our ministry has always reached out to parts of Utica and the Mohawk Valley that may have been overlooked in many ways by the church.  This is one reason we say that in Utica City Church, there are "No Perfect People Allowed."  We are the church, and we each are flawed, so we committ to being patient with one another as we grow together. 


Home Bible Study began in June


Planted the church, "Turning Point Church of Utica" on September 27th. 


Sold our old building to make way for the new downtown hospital in July.


Moved into our new and current location at 932 Rutger Street, Utica in August.
